LOS ANGELES, May 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In support of World Give Day and a continued commitment to giving to those in need, Capital Gold Group, Inc. has announced that a corporate donation has been made to support the much needed efforts of The Salvation Army Tornado Relief Fund for the victims of the deadly tornado outbreak which ravaged much of the Southeastern United States.
Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia were struck by as many as 312 tornadoes during the 24-hour period between 8:00 a.m. April 27 and 8:00 a.m. April 28, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The confirmed dead totals 340 with thousands of others injured and left homeless by the devastating twisters. Residents of Alabama were hit the hardest with over 246 killed in the state alone. President Barack Obama visited Alabama on April 29, signing a disaster declaration for Alabama, along with Mississippi and Georgia. Expert analysis by NOAA Research and the National Weather Service of the fatality information from the twisters indicated that April 27, 2011, was the single deadliest day for tornadoes since March 18, 1925.
Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) has deployed teams across the Southeast to provide support to storm survivors in the affected areas, as well as mobile feeding units including catering trucks, mobile kitchens, and a 20,000 meal per day full service field kitchen. A donation to The Salvation Army Tornado Relief Fund helps to provide the immediate relief and emergency services to victims affected by the twisters. Initial funds contributed to The Salvation Army Tornado Relief Fund by Capital Gold Group, Inc. and others will help get necessary services and supplies such as clean water, food, blankets, and medicine to the survivors of these destructive tornadoes.
Donations can be made at the website, http://disaster.salvationarmyusa.org, or to donate $10 text the word "GIVE" to 80888. Capital Gold Group is urging other socially responsible individuals and corporations to support the relief effort for the victims of this overwhelming tragedy.
World Give Day was started in 2010 by GiveForward, an online fundraising website dedicated to helping thousands of people raise millions of dollars for things like chemotherapy, organ transplants, mission trips, funeral expenses, and their favorite non-profits. World Give Day is one day a year when people all over the world are asked to come together to support the causes they care about most. Whether it be in the form of a donation to a non-profit organization, person in the community, or volunteered time, World Give Day is a day to focus on giving back.
